bike dreamland: lotsa bikes, few cars

So, I rode my bike today, normal route. But I have NEVER seen so many ppl on bikes, and so few cars. I dont know if thats cool, or depressing.

Around here (Dallas, Texas) the MUPs are busier than the streets!

I'd be lucky if i were to get 3' space from a vehicle on my side while riding. Less occurrence than pre-C-19, but still an issue.
a lot more runners out that I've noticed.

I like it. Park cars further apart so they don't catch the virus.

In Cambodia, a few people who came off a river cruise were found to have corona virus. People were scared they might catch the virus from the boat. It was a few hundred meters out in the water.

It is one thing what educated people do. It is another thing what poorly educated people do.
